Multiple Camera Synchronization

Hi all,

I've just started a project where I would like a create a simulation for a cluster of cameras in Gazebo. I have a few requirements for this.

1) The cameras need to be synchronized (perform image acquisition at the same time) 2) I need to be able to move the relative positions (extrinsics) between the cameras dynamically as the simulation runs.

I read through the documentation and saw that what I want would be possible to create by attaching each camera sensor to its own link, however as far as I can tell, in that case the cameras will not have a synchronized shutter. I further read into the Multi Camera plugin, however it says it only supports stereo cameras, and it doesn't look like I can change the position of the cameras dynamically during simulation.

What's the best way to go about this? I'm pretty new to Gazebo, so help is really appreciated! Thanks!

you can control the camera positions using system (gui) plugins, here is a simple demo http://gazebosim.org/wiki/Tutorials/1.9/plugins/camera_plugin
